Such significant difference was recorded only once, in September 2017, however for the last month based on past movements in January a two-year record for layoffs in this economic region was beaten.


More than a year the construction of residential buildings has been the most successful in the industrial sector of the Kingdom and fully justify the financial investment in its development. It continued even despite the fact that the expansion proceeded at a negligible rate and are not offset periodic downturns, which also differed its own records.
